On August 15, the French Resistance set an uprising in the capital of France then occupied by the German. On August 25, the partisan snipers received backup as the Free French 2nd Armored Division of general Leclerc enters Paris. Urban warfare ensues involving Free French Forces and the German garrison. German and Vichy loyalists are taken prisoners as general Von Choltitz surrenders to Leclerc on August 25. The US enter the city later and de Gaulle delivers a famous speech.

The copy is very good, sharp and clear, but 320 x 240 only. I hope to see a copy of this great movie in higher resolution. Thanks for sharing anyway! A must see for anyone interested in WW2 history and footage.
